really odd sleeping schedules

my boyfriend moved in with me a few months ago, and since then I've been having a really horrible time adjusting to his schedule. He works 7pm to 7am, and I take him to and from work (long story, not a changeable situation). Now that would be fine I suppose, but if I were to keep my original schedule before he moved in, sleeping at night, I would never see him...but I have a lot of trouble feeling rested if I sleep during the day.. As well, I have sleep apnea, so my sleep is horrible to begin with, and I have a tendency to sleep up to 12 hours if I'm not careful... mostly I wish I could just sleep with him when he sleeps, and stay awake the rest of the time with no naps or anything... but I'm always tired :(

Hello ChandraNalaar Wowzers, you really have the grueling sleep schedule. If I were you I would be the tired all of the times, too. Do you have any of the ideas for a different way to the sleeps?

I've tried a few different ways to sleep, and mostly I've settled on sleeping at night when my boyfriend is working, and sleeping with him when he's home. Sometimes, if I've got a lot to do around the house, but not so much outside in the real world, I've found it easier to stay up all night even when he's working to get stuff done, and then just sleep when he comes home. I guess I've adjusted somewhat...I just grab sleep when I can, and count myself lucky when I can sleep in haha.

Indeed, it does sound like you're adjusting to a weird sleep schedule. I have done similar things on occasion. After awhile, it can be exhausting. I hope that there somes a point where you are able to sleep on a more regular, restful, schedule.

hmmmm... It seems that you are in deep trouble in maintaining your sleeping schedule. Relationship is always meant to be compromised and here in this issue, you both need to compromise some how and make a common schedule. I hope, you will get it soon. have a nice time.
